—Yes, I am still grieving.
I am still grieving, because the work of grief is never done.
I am still grieving, because I put into my grief what I cannot put into life with my son.
I am still grieving, because he is STILL, and will always, be dead.
I am still grieving, because grief has no ending; grief lasts as long as love.
And so maybe, instead of “still,” you would understand it better if I said “always”—
—ALWAYS my child’s mom.

This grief awareness print explains that grief lasts as long as death, and you will always be your child’s parent, even and especially after their death.
These graphics are sized to print 5″ high x 7″ wide. You can print on a 5×7 notecard, on a full-size piece of cardstock and cut to size, or you can scale for larger prints. Place in a simple frame and snap a selfie or use in any other way you’d like to share one of the many truths about grief.
